Clown World: John Bolton, Democrat Hacks, Theresa May Pushing World Closer to Total Insanity

Today is Star Wars Day, right? May the 4th and all that. Maybe I’m a little old to be celebrating a movie, but whatever.

As I reviewed the events of the past week it reminded me that Star Wars, at its core, is about the pivotal moments in history and the changing from one political order to another.

Be it the fall of the Old Republic in the prequel films to the end of the Empire and Palpatine’s rule in the Original Trilogy. We even open The Force Awakens with Kylo Ren wiping out the last group of people who still revere the Jedi to begin his quest to consolidate power amidst the chaos.

Star Wars has always functioned as a mirror to our current political drama. Films emerge every generation to reflect where we’re headed as a society. Maybe that’s why the new films aren’t as well loved by a part of the fan base, they are telling us things we don’t want to hear.

So maybe it is fitting that this week’s events were all so indicative of what is happening in our world today.

The post WWII institutional order and political elite are old.

And the old institutional order is failing.

The outdated and old enmities between the U.S. and Russia led to a series of disastrous decisions by men and women who are obsessed with overcoming their thwarted expectations of enhanced power and prestige.

There was Operation Bay of Fat Pigs, coup-attempt which unfolded in real time in Caracas on Tuesday. John Bolton was “snookered” (H/T to Moon of Alabama for excellent reporting on this) by Venezuelan officials into thinking they had the military and supreme court on their side.

When Juan “Random Fall Guy” Guaido made his move and no one else did, the U.S. was caught televising live their own ineptitude. And then laughably tried to blame the Russians for it.

While it is clear that Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro had outwitted him, Bolton apparently continues to rail on U.S. Southern Command leadership and President Trump to invade.

Why? Because John Bolton is old, inflexible and well past his use-by date for coherent foreign policy decisions.

Lindsay Graham wandered in out of the bathhouse to wonder where our aircraft carriers were and why weren’t they sending a clear message to those pesky Russians?

And everyone else around the world is wondering what the hell are people in D.C. smoking?

If that wasn’t enough for you, how about the ridiculous spectacle of Democratic senators venting their desperation and vitriol at Attorney General William Barr for raining on their impeachment parade.

From Cory “Spartacus” Booker to Maisie “Respect Me, Dammit!” Hirono all we saw from them was desperation and histrionics at also being outwitted by both Donald Trump and his legal team.

Mueller, his staff of hatchetmen, the Obama administration and the rest of the corrupt old-guard in D.C. fully expected to be allowed free rein to convict Trump politically of Obstruction of Justice based on an interpretation of Federal Statutes that could only be justified in the world of Philip K. Dick’s Minority Report.

When that didn’t happen they are now looking at potential blowback from a vain and vindictive man occupying the supposedly most powerful office in the world.

But is that really the case anymore? It seems John Bolton has been more president than Trump recently.

The Federal Reserve revealed they have no answers to the rapidly brewing dollar liquidity problem they created and can’t extricate themselves from. Dropping Interest on Excess Reserves was pure window dressing on a problem far deeper than they can publicly admit to.
